miRNA-125b), so overall the generation of a new miRNA, its longevity and interdiction of translational processes may be relatively rapid neurogenetic process (Sethi and Lukiw, 2009). However, other biophysical and neurogenetic parameters such as miRNA secondary and tertiary structure, miRNA binding proteins, and other factors may significantly extend miRNA viability and action. Another poorly understood layer of complexity in miRNA signaling is that several miRNAs may regulate a single mRNA in… CONTINUE READING
